E100-70: Acts 1:1 - 11: The Ascension




Luke begins his sequel to the gospel "In the first book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus did and taught from the beginningâ¦" but his summary ocuses on the resurrection and stresses that it was real.

He then reports the risen Jesus telling the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Spirit, who he calls "the promise of the Father" then Jesus echoes the start of the gospel story in Luke 3:

John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. (Acts 1:5)

They ask him if he's going to start reigning now, but he replied:

It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority.

At a stroke doing away with most of what Christians think of as "prophecy"! But offers something betterâ¦

[This podcast will contain also a reminiscence of OT scholar David Clines in Jerusalem.]
